Muric agrees Pescara switch

Ajax Amsterdam winger Robert Muric has joined Italian outfit Pescara on a season-long loan with a view to making his stay permanent at the end of the campaign for a reported fee of 3m euros.

According to Sky Sports Italia, the 20-year-old Croatian will arrive at the newly-promoted side on temporary deal, although manager Massimo Oddo has the option to secure a permanent stay for Ajax man at the end of the campaign.

The skillful winger has struggled to break his way into the Eredivise side's first team due to a whole host of attacking options at the club, but he is still held in high regard.

He was in inspried form last season, scoring 13 goals and registering 15 assist in 46 games for Ajax's U21 side.

Capable of playing on either wing, the former Dinamo Zagreb youth product looks set to become one of the next technically gifted prospects to develop at the Italian side, following in the footsteps of Italy internationals Marco Veratti and Lorenzo Insigne.

Muric featured and scored in the Jupiler League opener, in a 1-1 draw with FC Emmen on Monday.
